Discussions that mention enbrel

Arthritis board

I have had Rheumatoid Arthritis for the past 13 years and have tried everything with little or no success. I have discussed taking Enbrel with my rheumatologist but it will be very expensive AUD 14,000 per year. I would like to hear from others who have tried it and are currently taking Enbrel.
Enbrel can be absolutely fantastic. You do the shots yourself twice a week, just under the skin. It's easy and after a few weeks the routine is actually boring. By then you'll have an idea of your results and can decide if the benefits warrant the expence for you.
